From Prog 1550. August 15th 2007.
From Thought Bubble this past weekend, Iz, Judge Anderson (aka Integra Fairbrook) and The Whittle. Stace is usually more smiley than this. She’ll be pulling a “shut up you Welsh idiot” face as she was most of the weekend.
Was toying with the idea of doing a podcast recap or write upbut as it’ll just be “we got drunk a lot” not sure there’s much point.
Here’s another couple of pics instead. Iz getting a international version of the obligatory Judge shot
And the FUCKING AWESOME Pete Wells who totally owned Thought Bubble in his guise as Judge Jimp
I will say though that it was a brilliant weekend. Got to hang out with loads of 2000AD types and totally avoid any of the dramas and drama queens.
A genetically modified dog piloting a tri-plane, battling it out with giant, flying bugs – could there BE a more 2000AD-esque cover? Over on the 2000AD Covers Uncovered Blog, Richard Elson tells all about the creation of this dynamic cover, from woofs to inks to the amazing colours of the finished image.
Ooooh, it looks woof in the skies tonight, best get bark to base… etc.
Two letters from the archives.
First up, from prog 8 published in April 1977. Some things never change, eh? He was ahead of the game though. This is an internet post before there even was an internet.
And next from prog 10. This kid is WAAAAY too serious.
That said he probably invested the tenner, got himself a Griffin Saver pack and now owns a solar powered speedboat.
Over on the 2000AD Covers Uncovered blog, John Higgins takes us through the creation of the cover and tell us a little bit about the mysterious and very dangerous, Family Man.
